Bruce Hornsby’s ‘Flicted is the final installment of a three-album suite that follows Absolute Zero in 2019 and Non-Secure Connection in 2020. One highlight of the new project is a unique, modern adaptation of a Chuck Berry classic. Set to a funky, hip hop-leaning drum loop and resting on a sassy piano groove, Hornsby’s take on “Too Much Monkey Business” feels at first like an easygoing, rhythmic tune, but faint familiarity grows quickly into an a-ha moment when the chorus rolls around. The quirky music video is fun and inventive, just like many of the songs from ‘Flicted. As Hornsby himself explains, “The album title ‘Flicted relates to this strange time in which we live, when the world is basically, well, ‘flicted.” Look for Hornsby on the road with his band, The Noisemakers, throughout the summer.
